Bocce Ball

 
 Yesterday was such a beautiful day.  We couldn't help but get outside
and enjoy the sun, lower humidity, cooler temps, lower humidity, nice
breeze and lower humidity.  So, we had a friendly game of Bocce...
 
 
 
The colored balls were just so lovely on our grass...
 
 
 
And, the sun was amazing...
 
 
 
Following the Bocce Battle, I noticed this pretty little web under our deck...

When we lived in France we used to watch the older gentlemen play this in the park all the time! Nice set of shots...and I am also a HUGE fan of lower humidity!!!

I'm glad the humidity was lower for you. :) I know exactly what you mean. I once visited my aunt in Arizona, and even though it was in the 90s, they had their windows open because there was NO humidity.

Sounds and looks like a beautiful weekend. I'm happy for you!

Bocce ball is so fun! It is fun when the weather is nice, and the sun is warm, but not hot!

(new visitor from "and then, she snapped") what a fun subject to photograph, it reminds me of playing this at family gatherings when I was younger. We purchased a set for my dad for Father's Day years ago...wondering where it is now. Thanks for sharing.
